2:00 am
war hotels on al-jazeera. east and the differences. and the similarities of cultures across the world. al-jazeera. this is al-jazeera. hello i'm adrian finighan this is the news our live from doha coming up in the next sixty minutes so he's lying about a project that everybody knew about the u.s. president donald trump reacts to his former lawyers admission that he lied to congress during the russian investigation. the g.
2:01 am
twenty summit already off to a shaky start but trump canceling a meeting with russia's president vladimir putin. russia deploys more s. four hundred missile systems to crimea as the crisis with ukraine escalates. and the democratic republic of congo facing the world's second largest outbreak of a bull. pressure is building on the u.s. president donald trump after his former lawyer admitted lying to congress michael cohen says he made false statements during last year's investigation into alleged russian interference in the twenty sixteen presidential election trump is accusing cohen of lying to get a reduced sentence is political hay and reports from washington. mobbed by reporters michael cohen said nothing leaving the court but inside a guilty plea he lied. to congress now admitting that he was trying to arrange
2:02 am
a real estate deal in moscow during the time it was clear donald trump would be the republican candidate the cohen was in fact going to travel to russia to work on the deal and that now president trump knew about it all things cohen had previously denied bruce fein worked in the justice department and he says this is a big deal so this is a time where we have a criminal information that identifies the president himself secondly it also indicates that president trump or then candidate trump felt vulnerable if it was known that he was dealing in russian enterprises or because he would need to curry the favor of mr putin nothing happens in russia of important without mr putin's approval the president dismissed the news in his usual fashion badmouthing his former top aide he's a weak person. by being weak not like other people that you watch he's a weak person and what he's trying to do is get
2:03 am
a reduced sentence so he's lying about a project that everybody knew about i mean we were very open to where the kohen did plead guilty to crimes that completely related to trump pain of women who trump had an affair with so they would stay quiet before the election and while it might not have been illegal to do a deal in russia while he is under investigation for potentially colluding with russia to win the election it would have looked suspicious this makes six six close aides to the president have now pled guilty as part of the special counsel's probe democrats say this is bad for the president you've got all these closest associates of the president. one after another pleading guilty often pleading guilty about their ties to russia and russians and what are they covering up for and we also have a white house that still seems just obsessed about this investigation it's believed the special counsel has filed several indictments that are still under seal which
2:04 am
means it is quite likely michael cohen won't be the last to face the cameras or the court. al-jazeera washington let's bring it out zeros out to gallagher who is also in washington d.c. so i think one of the wider implication of cohen's mission for the moeller investigation and for the president himself. well what you have here is someone that was the president's fixer and personal lawyer for ten years someone who knows president trump very well knows his business dealings very well and what he's saying is that any business dealings with russia may have gone beyond that january twenty sixth dean date line before donald trump became president elect trump in essence one of the most important points is what written president trump was given to special counsel robert muller in relation to the business dealings for the potential of building a trump tower in moscow because the what you may have here is evidence from michael cohen that goes against what dan trump is saying which could really spell
2:05 am
a great deal of trouble for donald trump if there is hard evidence to say that he continued talking to business people in russia and here's another important point we're talking about somebody who was running for the u.s. presidency at the time having dealings with russia a country that has and the security services here have no doubt was interfering in the u.s. election to get donald trump elected so the optics of what is going on here potentially just simply does not look good for don trump given everything else that's going on in the robert mueller investigation and even he thinks that he got to go there live in washington from bruce fein whom you heard from a pretty cool hames report a few moments ago he says that cohen's seeking revenge for the way the president trump has treated him since he was implicated in the payoff to the adult film star stormy daniels. well i believe at the outset we can't attribute this to altruism i believe that he thinks that president trump basically abandoned him
2:06 am
when he got involved in the stormy daniels payoff and now this is kind of his revenge so i think both men have old here motives here but mr muller does not i believe this is the first time we see some collusion between mr trump himself who in the indictment to which mr cohen pled guilty he's referred to is number one in the organization that mr cohen did have communications with president trump during the campaign up in through at least june or july of two thousand and sixteen about a possible real estate deal in moscow that this committee these kind of discussions were concealed from the american people that mr cohen lied about it to the judiciary to the oversight committees and that's why i think mr mr trump feels so resentful and remember one of the things that he said in his comment he said
2:07 am
well it could be true but who cares about it which indicates that he he concealed it because he knew would be embarrassing he's almost confessing that mr cohen is accurate in the his accusations the volume of attack on mr muller seems to be proportional to the closeness that he comes to the white house i believe that he ultimately will be pushed provoke to fire mr muller when he actually receives the subpoena to testify under oath about among other things this june two thousand and sixteen meeting with donald junior and man afford and shared question because you remember that that meeting was something that clearly was a probe of mr man a for when they're asking him repeatedly did mr trump know about this meeting and i say i was there at the time mr archibald cox who is my professor at. law school was fired by mr nixon and that precipitated impeachment proceedings i think that's down the road probably
2:08 am
a month or two but i think we'll need to get to that level before firing occurs of mr moller the u.s. president has canceled a meeting with his russian counterpart at the g. twenty summit in argentina donald trump used twitter to announce that he won't be holding talks with viremia putin he also ruled out meeting the saudi crown prince mohammed bin solomon because of time constraints white house correspondent kimberly hellcat reports from one of us in a year filled with memorable foreign trips u.s. president donald trump's first visit to south america to attend the meeting of g twenty leaders in argentina is bound to make headlines. he cancelled his last trip to south america in april the u.s. was preparing to strike syria this time in broiled in trade disputes with europe canada and china. a border fight with mexico and a climate policy that is modeled it best troubled just like the previous g.

twenty be surrounded by leaders who have serious disagreements with him. he has several meetings planned but his dinner with chinese president xi jinping will be closely watched. we can have trade that's meant for stupid people. trump has railed against what he calls unfair trade practices by the chinese and has slapped import tariffs on hundreds of billions of goods he's threatened to significantly increase those tariffs next year his me was she will be an attempt to cool tensions. he was supposed to meet with russian president vladimir putin but abruptly announced on thursday he's canceling it over concerns about the recent russian incursion in crimea which is heighten the possibility of war with ukraine it will also be the first time trump is in the same room as saudi arabia's crown prince mohammed bin solomon says the death of jim. he's the washington post
2:10 am
contributor who was murdered in the saudi consulate in istanbul last month trump is faced heavy criticism following his recent decision to back the kingdom and ignore the assessment of the cia which reportedly believes the crown prince was involved still there is no official meeting set up between trump and the crown prince i would have bet with him but we didn't set that one up by meeting with president the which is a very important meeting having to do with race and as you know i make it about three or four meetings here just to have done one area of compromise for the g. twenty leaders could be on the issue of climate change it was divisive the last time they met in germany but now a decision by the trumpet ministration to bury a report on the disastrous impacts of climate change could make agreement once again a tough sell kimberly help at al-jazeera where the satirists just moments ago china's president xi jinping arrived. he's attending the g.
2:11 am
twenty meeting of course let's go live now to. al-jazeera silence is that the crown prince of saudi arabia and the murder of. to some extent of a shot at this change when he meets me saying our leaders that handling this we're not entirely sure it may well become. in the next few hours when they actually sit down. who is with. him. who talks to him in the theater more a night. and next term what they called and i'm sorry we're having are having some problems with with your audio with your microphone there we'll come back to you in the next few minutes once we've once we've sorted that out. this is the news hour from al-jazeera still to come on the program jubilation in palestine after the release of one of the youngest prisoners in an israeli jail but hundreds more kids
2:12 am
remain behind. time is for free speech in senegal as the government acts a new law restricting online access. on the liver to torres says move thousands of kilometers away to madrid after fan violence courses the final to be held outside argentina far over here with that for the rest of the sport a little eight. caliber says it will impose sanctions on seventeen saudi nationals over the murder of the journalist. the restrictions are aimed at those the government believes are responsible for or complicit in the killing the us germany and france have already taken similar action is also reviewing arms sales to riyadh in the wake of the killing and saudi arabia's role in the war in yemen. murder him to mark the shoji is a point and represents an unconscionable attack on freedom of expression and freedom
2:13 am
of the press he continued to call for eight credible and independent international investigation. this case is not east those responsible for mr specialities death must be held to account and must face justice the united nations aid chief is in yemen's capital to review the humanitarian crisis caused by the war marc local has called for an end to the fighting between the saudi u.a.e. coalition and hooty rebels whilst in sana'a he's visit families in areas worst affected by the fighting and says that many people have been left with nothing. this family behind me have been in these terrible conditions here for four years now. women with their husbands and children they have nothing and they have tiny rudimentary shelters there's not enough food they're very not an already very
2:14 am
welcome in the local community have got nothing themselves so there's a very insecure environment are none of the children going to school. you know a lot of times as part of my job and this is really a terrible desperate by this war needs to end these people need a better future during a u.s. state department briefing the deputy spokesman was questioned about why the views of congress on yemen's war are being ignored on wednesday the senate delivered a strong message to president trump by voting to advance a resolution to end u.s. involvement in the war. the secretary has made clear our position on. the violence in the humanitarian disaster that has taken place in yemen and we just announced additional measures to. you know help alleviate some of that situation and it's actually quite significant it's worth mentioning one hundred thirty one
2:15 am
million in emergency food assistance to the people of yemen and this and that and that is why we support the special representative and we think the timing is right and we are on the cusp and saw it out that yes it is significant i'm sure that it is appreciated but that is not the answer the question of how you can say well from funguses views on this and then just ignore it and then they essentially we can so we consult we consult with the congress please let's get back to zero. point to is at the g. twenty meeting there that's about to get under way i would talk about that's what extent of the president's presence rather of saudi arabia's crown prince vomit been solomon is overshadowing this meeting. well we know that a senior saudi royal said to the weekend look if you want to do business if you want to talk about global economy then you really have to have dealings with saudi
2:16 am
arabia and therefore you have to have dealings with someone who is here to represent the country and the king but there is going to be tension who shakes his hand who pulls him aside for a small meeting who sits next to him at dinner in the theater behind me who is going to stand next to him what comes to the family photo which is what they call the picture when all the leaders get together will that give us an indication of who is upset with the hamad bin it's being forgiven is he being taken back into the international fuld now we know that donald trump says he's not going to speak to him that there is no time set aside you could still pull him aside for a very short meeting there are other leaders who said that the intending to speak to mohammed bin starman the u.n. chief said that he will he wants to talk about yemen and president mccraw of france where he's been speaking he says that he wants to speak to mohammed bin salman and he wants to talk to him about the martyr of jamal khashoggi.
2:17 am
should be there's the case of khashoggi which is serious and i hope that the truth to show and i hope that all the investigations taking place in turkey and saudi arabia continues and give full clarity to this family and the international community with respect to people's rights and the presumption of innocence and we hope to have clarity and that the international community comes together for this to happen. of course many other issues on the g. twenty agenda this weekend alan how does the u.n. secretary general think that the leaders can approach the. well the g twenty has had problems in the past not all of the twenty industrialized nations get together with each other all the time and so we know that there are difficulties china and the united states two biggest economies currently involved in a trade war there is the jamal khashoggi case which is separated in split nations as well and then there is what happened in the waters of the ukraine last weekend which is upset a number of countries particularly the fact that russia is going to be here as well
2:18 am
so and until you get ten days the u.n. secretary general had a news conference here a couple of hours ago and i said to him how can you possibly get the g twenty to concentrate on the issues that you want them to concentrate on what all the other stuff is going on in the periphery it is clear that all the events that we. do not to see the. g twenty meeting in which people can concentrate more effectively in the dressing the problems of the globally the problems of the climate change and it's obvious but we should live. stop at the rest of the central problems of all of that just because others things are happening that was the job of the. citizens the women you. well antonio. said with a you know what needs to be done how are you going to do that and he said well i
2:19 am
don't know you tell me i pointed out i'm not the u.n. secretary general it's his job to try and get them talking but there are crucial issues that the g twenty needs to deal with not least climate change they've got to talk about that because there are numerous warnings that the situation isn't getting any better despite the paris accord it's actually getting worse and then there is the question of the global economy there are some people who are concerned it could be heading for another recession maybe not quite as bad as two thousand and eight but it's not going to be pleasant either so these things have to be addressed will they get a communique at the end of this well that's also up in the air as well because the last two significant international conferences. which involves the asia pacific nations there was no communicate at the end of that quite simply because the u.s. didn't want to sign up to one and then remember the g seven a few months ago when there was a communique agreed but then donald trump on the flight home decided that he was going to disavow it because he was involved in a personal spot with the canadian prime minister so there's a lot to play for over the next forty eight hours gutierrez and others are hoping
2:20 am
that the spats the arguments the rows the real conflicts between these countries can be put to say and they can come up with a common approach to deal with problems that they all face under serious alan fischer live and when assad is on many thanks. ukraine's president is calling for international help in his nation's standoff with russia petro poroshenko wants nato to deploy ships to the sea of. where russia's been blockading ports it comes as russia deploys more surface to air missiles to crimea border regions in ukraine are now under martial law including the city of kharkiv from where simmons reports. martial law in ukraine second city is very evident more police on the ground and extra vigilance but most of the emergency powers now available to the president being held in reserve sophia and counted is a journalist who was here outside the city's russian consulate when it was

2:22 am
at the end of march next year the fact that a bill like to only buy back in twenty fourteen it should have been done and everyone would have taken it normally it could have been an adequate response to the situation but now it looks ridiculous. an estimated thirty percent of hockey these people are ethnic russian and the border is only forty kilometers away if the conflict was to escalate drastically would certainly be in the firing line and this is the city that built thousands of teeth thirty four tanks its legendary armor believed by many to have been one of the main reasons why the soviets defeated the nazis in the second world war. now work to build and maintain ukrainian tanks is virtually nonstop with exports halted. its won't necessarily what's happening on the ground that's alarming what's going

to say what i think or even to make it so members of parliament voted you lot to regulate the internet some human rights groups say it allows the state to shut down access to social media and censor content online it looks like they're not very comfortable with the freedom of expression and freedom of speech and the internet is the huge powerful tool to many africans to expect their views and be relayed around the globe. there have been two hundred sixty four internet shutdowns in the last three years around the world and more and more governments are cutting access to the internet especially in africa in the english speaking regions of cameroon where a presidential campaign took place the internet is down for almost a year now tanzania uganda been in and egypt are some of the countries introducing new internet laws the governments say this is not about censorship but stopping fake news and regulating the telecom operators who for now have trimmed fleet

2:31 am
prince mohammed bin salma. of the united nations chief a chief is in yemen's capital to review the humanitarian crisis local says the situation for many people is desperate at its continued calls for an end to the war . the world health organization has warned that the a bold outbreak in the democratic republic of congo is the second biggest on record that history has confirmed four hundred twenty six cases of the disease so far this year at least two hundred forty five people have died. in congress north kivu a tour of provinces since the latest outbreak was declared in all guests talk to peter j. hotez is the dean of the national school of tropical medicine at baylor college of medicine he joins us now live via skype from san diego california good to have you with us dr so this these four hundred twenty six reported cases of a bowl in the eastern part of the d.l.c. makes that they say the second worst outbreak they've ever known one of the
2:32 am
contributing factors to these huge numbers well one of the real big problems has been of course that part of eastern congo is one of the most destabilized. regions of the world they've had almost continuous violence for practically twenty years and you might say well what is violence and conflict do with these what happened that collapses the whole structure so when you want to be concerned about safe burial which are a big problem during breaks or contacting or potentially infected individual this presents a really tough problem for health workers were areas so is this a health crisis or a political crisis. well one of the new normals of the twenty first century is the two are intimately connected so what we've in our research one of the things that we've found is the world's neglected tropical diseases first and foremost occur in
2:33 am
areas of conflict and political instability this accounts for why we have the old west african twenty four why venezuela is a disaster right now in terms of tropical infection the same is true and eastern congo i mean the good news is that we have a vaccine that didn't have the back. the twenty fourteen outbreak in west africa so we have a very effective and relatively safe vaccine available now. so that's the good news and so far more than thirty thousand doses. at the problem is working in such an unstable area you have to assure the safety of the vaccinators and you have to be able to trace henschel contacts and get vaccinated so in theory this should be. a non-problem should be able to quickly contain this through use of the vaccine but because of the massive political instability one of the most difficult parts of the world that really slows things down and unfortunately so far
2:34 am
more than two hundred people are alright so given the instability than the difficulties how quickly can this can this be contained i mean i mean can it be contained given the number of cases and how unstable that area is. well given the fact that we have a vaccine in hand in theory we should be able to contain this so it's a matter of the united nations bringing in peacekeepers assuring a commitment to the government democratic congo to do whatever they can to minimize hostilities to effect cease fires maximize the ability we should be able to do that but it remains to be seen whether we have the political will. or too many thanks indeed p.j. hotez there from the school of tropical medicine at baylor college of medicine in san diego california prosecutors in italy will investigate members of egypt's
2:35 am
security forces over their alleged involvement in the murder of an italian graduate student julia a janie does disappeared in cairo and january twenty sixth team his body was found almost a week later at a post-mortem showed that he'd been tortured earlier this year the italian prosecutor said that he believed her jamie was killed by egyptian security services over his research francisco where he is the founder of the political risk consultancy policy so now he says the diplomatic motives behind the attorney and prosecutor's decision. rome needs ny so that it can claim that it has come on way and has identified the torture as a whole new year again. and egypt as possibly come to the conclusion that it has to see. these names so that and close this to see it once and forever and
2:36 am
that so that both countries can move ahead. with. the reason it took so long have to do with the gigantic size all rejections security operators which is why the tribal law it has nothing to do with it that is also sent to say that it is not really per se where. when we when we entered into that we should think at least the three distinct powers the judiciary rejects second branch of government and. and the only part that has been. ongoing against egypt and then complaining i proud of the lack of collaboration at some point was. it never was the gulf and the government always try as not just possible to keep the
